I've a trip to London booked 7-9 march now with the dungens opening on the 1st what would i need to do as a premium pass holder to guarantee to get in there


Just turn up, you don't need to book or anything. If its really busy you'll have to queue for some time, but get there early enough and you'll be in no worries.

If this is true, then I'm not impressed....

http://www.merlinannualpass.co.uk/misc/standard-pass-restrictions-popup.aspx
"Please be aware that The London Dungeon is closed from the 31st January due to relocation. It will be re-open to Passholders from 11th March 2013 in it's new place next to The EDF Energy London Eye!"

This is well hidden I was planning on going but that really isn't impressive IMO, but I know they don't want thousands and thousands of pass holders flooding there and getting queue jump and general public who are paying the ridiculous entry price will not get in and Merlin won't get their money.

But if your a pass holder you can book for the preview event http://thenewlondondungeonpreview-web.eventbrite.com/

I think I will avoid the new dungeons for some time, to be honest I wasn't that impressed with the old ones. I would only go again as its included on the pass. But out of all the attractions Merlin have the only one I would pay cash to get in if I didn't have a MAP would be Alton and Chessie, and I would only do that on a BOGOF.

Sorry to break that new guys. I believe if your a premium pass holder you can go as of the 1st march, but don't quote me on that (check the MAP site)

Im going to thorpe park soon with 3 friends (that makes 4 incuding me) and im trying to thnk of the cheapest way to go. So i thought that i will get 2 of the tickets with tesco clubcard tokens as we only have enough for 2 (£22) :P and the other two we will do a buy 1 get 1 free. I was wondering can you do the buy one get one free tickets online so it would only cost us £30.24 instead of £43.20? and if anyone has any other ideas which get the tickets cheap that would be much apprecieted :D




43.20+22=65.20 divided 4=£16.30 each.

^ Buy 1 Get 1 Free tickets only apply to the full gate prices. You can't get it off the already discounted pre book price.

Guys, i'm heading to Thorpe on the 28th and wanted to purchase some things at Emergency Supplies!

I just want to know, how much a swarm t-shirt would be, and how much a hoodie would be?

Replies would be much appreciated. :) Thank You! :)

I haven't been in ages, however if this weather continues, I imagine the crowds would be low. The heat here in the South is unbearable at times. Last weekend I got 20 rides in at Thorpe, the park wasn't that busy on Sunday.

So I guess Chessington should be ok? I for one definitely wouldn't want to go!

Wondering how busy Thorpe Park will be on the weekend 21/22 September, and how many rides it will be possible to get on? I may be visiting with friends on one of those days and was hoping to find out how many rides we could go on.
Also, I have a phobia of loud sudden noises, and things/people jumping out at me, and for this reason I have never been on Saw The Ride solely because I am aware the queue line involves a lot of this. Can you tell me how scary it is and whether you think I could do it? Oh, and if I do, would it be socially acceptable to wear headphones and a blindfold in the queue?  :lol:
